Last year was my first at Old Town Global Academy. We spent a lot (did I say A LOT) of time working on procedures and routines. That had a huge payoff semester 2 with quick reviews and lots of action.
I did wonder how much time I’d need to spend getting us back up to par this year. We reviewed procedures. Did they remember them? They did. We practiced movement around the library. Did they move correctly? They did! Bingo! Every 1st – 5th grade class got to spend some time in stations for their first class of the year.
This year, we are going to add components from Ron Clark’s 55 to the mix. Can’t wait to see the results!
